It looks so incredibly cheesy and kid-friendly, I had to buy it. Looking from the box, it's yet another one of the millions of NES clones.
After a little bit of searching, I found 2 variations of it on the Ultimate Console Database. Both are mentioned being available in foreign countries. The kicker to me is that it actually has a cartridge slot! Perhaps I should have bought a cheap NES game to go with it. Oh well. Didn't think it would accept ANY cartridges for being 8 bucks.
Sadly, this thing runs on batteries. So perhaps it's time for a hack with my friend to get it to run off a power supply. I opened the box, and the dang thing has been shrinkwrapped. I doubt with this toy it has been re-shrinkwrapped.
The controller ports are Atari-style 9-pin. I wonder if they are Sega Genesis compatible.
Yeah, the gun. You can tell this wasn't intended for the nanny-state American market since it's all black. This would fail the "point it at a cop" test(when you get bored with the games). I love the Engrish "21 difference games". Addendium: I just looked closely at the gun, and it says "Lethal Enforcers" on it. Nope, no product piracy there! Silly pirates.
I just found another Famiclone that had the same controllers(but diff colors) and the same gun, but with a banana clip on it. That one looked better having a keyboard(Mega Kid Educational Computer).
To me, it's fun tracing the DNA of these pirate consoles & games.
Wowee! A not-even-close-to-a-brag!
